    16-35 + 70-200 f4IS + 1D mk2. Thinktank speed racer belt system with bottle bag and Whip it out lens pouch. Try to go as light as possible and avoid bringing a heavy bag.Manfrotto 190 CXpro3 tripod + Arca-Swiss Z1 BH.(Leave in hotel room until sun goes down. I carry along panadol, flu medicine, plasters and water everywhere I go incase of emergencies since I am often in 3rd world countries like Cambodia. Make sure you don't have a fever before you arrive in the country by taking a panadol if you feel the slightest bit unwell.(Authorities WILL not hesitate to get you quarantined and s'pore embassy often cannot do anything to help you.)

    You must be crazy LOL. The 200mm reach on ur 18-200 makes the 70-200 totally redundant.Why on earth did you bring your flash unit too?Shooting an event there or what?

    When e answer this question, we need to also tell what was or is the purpose of the trip. What do we plan to shoot?

    What we plan on doing dictates what camera we bring!

    Extracted this from some other forum... What you bring depends on;

    1. Whether you take photographs while you travel

    or

    2. Whether you travel to take photographs
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    i'm the light traveller, cos I love shopping so my cam must be under 1kg ,all in + spare batteries. i can live with the compact as well. My travel pictures should not lose to most people carrying a boatload of stuff.
